This Week at the Capitol, Capitol Topic In-Depth, State Contracts 101

This Week at the Capitol (4:12) Lawmakers reached the half-way point of the 2014 regular session.

State Contracts 101 (17:39) Louisiana has nearly 13,000 active contracts – the majority for $50,000 or more. Will proposed legislation of ten-percent cuts help rein in costs or create arbitrary caps that hinder state agencies?
